About Us

At Gornalls Funeral Directors we have been giving an unparalleled standard of funeral care to Prescot and its surrounding communities since the 1940s. You can find our funeral home on West Street; just off Derby Street and Liverpool Road. Along with Prescot, we serve Whiston, Knowsley, Eccleston, Huyton and Rainford from our other funeral home.

We understand that no two people are the same and funerals should be no different. This is a difficult time for you and your family, which is why we relieve some of the pressure off and arrange a farewell that is special and like no other. Our empathic and attentive team will work with you to understand all your wishes and cater to your every preference, no matter what they may be.

Our funeral home is a charming Victorian building with welcoming flowers and shrubbery outside. The building is part of the heritage of Prescot; before it was purchased by Mr James Gornall, it was the local fire station until the early 1990s.

We are here to support you at every step of this difficult time. Our team are available 24 hours a day to offer you help, support and advice, please call us as soon as you need us.

Please get in touch so we can give your loved one the dignified and unique funeral service that they deserve.

Our Simple funeral is available for £1,995 + third party costs, without compromising on the quality of the service that is delivered. Or our Full Service funeral can be tailored just how you wish, whether that be a traditional ceremony or a colourful celebration of life.

    As anyone knows losing a loved one is very hard indeed. You dread having too go to the funeral home. Yet when my family and I went too Gornalls,to arrange my husbands funeral,we felt so at ease. The director Gillian McCormack,went through everything very carefully and calmly. We left there feeling our loved one would be taken care of so well, in there care. I could not recommend Gornalls enough for anyone thinking about the best funeral home, for a loved one.

    Gornalls were really good. We found them to be compassionate and efficient. The staff were all well informed and guided us throughout this sad process. They coordinated our wishes on the day of the funeral whilst remaining discreetly in the background. Thank you.
